Poor management. Rent was just raised and is now way over priced for the conditions of the buildings. Laundry has gone up $.25 for both washer and dryer. Majority of tenants have been evicted with 30day no cause or they have simply just left because they can no longer afford to live here, or just don't want to deal with the managers anymore. Very little security here as far as wondering if you will keep your apartment or be kicked out.

Just issued no fireworks what so ever. Horrible onsight managers who make horrible management decisions. Nothing against Norris and Stevens except for hiring these morons! Would not suggest moving here to anyone.

Bad onsight managers that have already had a harassment charge filed agains them within the first 2 months they were here. They are very nosey and intrusive.

Yeah this place really went downhill. It seems like it's getting to the point where the little kids that live here aren't even gonna be able to play outside anymore. The managers complain about everything and expect everyone here to act like its a gated community or something. This is the place where the people that can't afford, or get into the other nearby apartments go. It's just getting really ridiculous around here.

This place has gone WAY downhill. The current managers are intrusive, nosey and act like they think they are everyone's parents rather than fellow tenants who want to make life pleasant for all who live here. They recently felled and cut up some trees from the winter snowstorm...and instead of offering the wood to the tenants (many of whom have fireplaces) instead gave it away to their relatives. Remember, it is the tenant's rent that paid for the work on the trees. They make living here a pain. Add to that raised rents and 30 day evictions so they can get new tenants at the higher rental rate and you have a complex which it is best to avoid rather than seek out. Don't move here unless you have no other options at your disposal.

I'm an ex-tenant who was lucky enough to have moved out before the manager swap, but I am still very close to another tenant so I am there quite a bit and just wanted to help warn anyone considering Jamestown Plaza for anything other than YOU'RE VERY LAST RESORT! Every negative thing that was stated above is ABSOLUTELY TRUE and then some. Including this... The last manager lived upstairs so that was to be their apartment. However, they didn't want to be upstairs so they 30 day no caused the tenants right below that apartment so they could have it! HOW RUDE and INCOSIDERATE!!!

If you're reading this you can be assured that every word posted above, about Jamestown Plaza is true.

Norris and Stevens have no heart, so therefore they hired managers with no heart. Business is business...on that I have no argument. But the managers, as much as they try not to admit it, DO have say over a lot of things. These people are EVIL and go to church to hide it.

I am not normally a spiteful person, but I feel it my duty to warn others of the injustice that goes on there.

I would rather live on the street than EVER rent an apartment at Jamestown Plaza again!!!

One word - BOYCOTT!!!

The Managers must be new since I moved in here in September 2010. They are very nice and take care of the apartments well. They seem to be very fair. I have never had a problem and was surprised to find this website. Like I said, these messages must be about the old managers.

I think you are the manager because you wrote a lie about yourself. Every other review written before you is the truth...The only rules there are here are when they want them to be heard about. You can only live here if it were your last option to live in your life, in an apartment with PAIN!
The manager is used to gossiping and finding out the life of the residents and she calls the police for any reason.

We got asked to leave without cause 3months ago.we are now homeless. Some Hispanic manager has been working there for 14yrs? She says. I'm assuming she is the same manager everybody is talking about. Unprofessional. We never had a copy of our lease agreement.when it rained hard, the rain leaked through the back sliddingdoor.she done nothing to fix it. 1 of the manager is a pervert.disgusting...i can go on & on but, i would not recommend.

I have live in many place from houses to suits to apartments WHATEVER you do DO NOT MOVE here managers are liars unreasonable and should be fined for what they are doing to people. Matter of fact I don't think it's legal what they are doing to tenants here which I will look in to and take legal action if nesassary. I have had the worst experience of all places I have live and I have lived in some bad placeses. I ignored the reviews and moved in any ways now I have found my self scrambling to move any where but here. Please be informed and know what your getting your self in to before you move in to hell.

New On-Site Managers as of April 2013, awesome couple have made great improvements, has done lots of upgrades and clean up the property. It is now a pleasure living here and a great place to call home. Thank you Norris & Stevens for the new Managers.
